    Wish I Could Cry

    I am 52 and in my life i have never really been able to cry. I have had so many times when crying would have relieved some of the sadness and stress that built up in my life. People who cry probably can't even understand why I can't. It just seems I can't let go and let myself...

    No Tears

    I have never been someone who was prone to tears, even as a kid I didn't really cry.  But, when I did, it was balls out, full on tears and hiccuping and runny nose. Well, when I was about seven or eight, stuff happened between me parents and it really upset me. So, I started...

    A Thought?

     Sometimes... it seems like the people that try not to cry are the ones in need of a really good cry. You can't hold everything in forever. You have a breaking point. Just let it out when you can...  But what do I know? I cry all the time. :/

    It's Impossible to Stop.

    As a child I never cried. Then I cried a lot. Everywhere and about everything. Several times in front of teachers. Just because my teachers would make a comment like "You have to work on this or that.". It would make me cry. Now I'm hardly ever crying again...

    And yet I am such a cry baby. The tiniest thing makes me cry. If I hurt myself I cry, if I get told off I cry, if I miss someone I cry, if I get annoyed I cry, I hate it.
